The Love Him, Hate Him President

"Your report neglected to mention that one of Bush's campaign slogans was 'I'm a uniter, not a divider.' Ironic words indeed." Bill Pakula Destin, Fla.

It's absurd to think George W. Bush single-handedly created divisiveness in the U.S. [Dec. 1]. He became President of a nation already divided by numerous issues--abortion, the death penalty, affirmative action, family values, marriage, national security, welfare, the environment, taxes and so forth. Bush naturally takes a position on each issue, just as every other citizen does. He cannot conceivably support all sides. Anne-Marie Shaffer Palm Coast, Fla.
